Smith & Wesson Introduces New .22 LR Target Pistol

S&W Victory 22 pistol

Smith & Wesson has introduced a new, affordable .22 LR (rimfire) target pistol, the SW22 Victory. The new SW22 Victory is a fixed barrel, enclosed hammer, blow-back semi-auto design. In profile it looks similar to a Ruger Mark III, but with a more vertical grip angle. Interestingly, the 5.5″-long “match-grade” bull barrel can be removed with a simple one-screw takedown system. S&W claims the new SW22 Victory is very accurate — we hope to test one soon and verify those claims.

The SW22 Victory comes standard with a fiber optic front sight and an adjustable green fiber optic rear sight. Though not shown in the top photo, the SW22 ships with a Picatinny-style top rail for easy mounting of optics. (We commend S&W for providing a factory rail option). Fire controls on the pistol include alloy trigger with adjustable trigger stop, single-sided thumb safety, slide stop, and magazine release. The SW22 Victory’s unloaded weight is 37.4 ounces. OAL is 9.2 inches, and the pistol is fairly slim at 1.3 inches width. MSRP is $409.00 with two (2) 10-round mags.
